Everywhere you look these days, you see something about CBD oil. When Blue Ridge Hemp contacted me about their CBD superfood products, I heard of the benefits of CBD oil, but never tried it. Many find it to have soothing or healing properties. It can be especially helpful with anxiety, depression, chronic pain, inflammation and more. It’s a real superfood product.
If you’re unfamiliar with CBD oil, there are two types. The kind made from hemp, which contains no THC and the kind made from marijuana. The hemp type, which is what Blue Ridge Hemp sells, is legal nearly everywhere (you should check your own location to verify the legality). It contains all the healing benefits of cannabis without the high you get from THC.
Blue Ridge Hemp makes a variety of CBD oil products, but I was most interested in their coconut oil, since I use that a lot in my baking. They currently have three flavors – plain, chocolate and golden spice (which contains tumeric, cardamom and cinnamon). I decided to try out the golden spice, because I was intrigued by the rich spicy flavor. I thought a subtle chocolate cookie would pair great with the cinnamon and cardamom in the coconut oil. I even decided to add in a little ginger to give it more of a zing. All of the flavors work together to create a really exotic little treat. Enjoy!
